2014 Kia Soul
2014 Kia Soul

New For 2014

The 2014 Kia Soul is all-new, and it improves upon a previously enticing package.

Vehicle Summary

In 2009, Kia was known for crappy, uncool cars. Today, it's one of the hippest automakers around. The Soul played a big part in catalyzing that rapid change. The funky box car went on sale, resonated with buyers, became a success, and has been one of Kia's best sellers since. Hoping to keep a good thing going, Kia is bringing out a brand-new Soul for 2014. Not only is it new, the 2014 Kia Soul is seriously improved. It's quieter, it handles better, it's on a bigger platform, it's more comfortable, it's more spacious, and it's prettier. It's a much better car, and the last Soul was pretty good to begin with. Kia is doing it right, and this second-generation Soul shows just how good the Korean automaker can be.

Overview

Block-shaped cars are dying. The Honda Element is a fossil on used-car lots, and the Scion xB is going to be discontinued. But there is one car that can carry the funky-box, compact-crossover class, a car that outsells the Scion by six to one -- the 2014 Kia Soul. The Soul has a bunch of mojo that buyers have loved for about four years, and now there's a new Soul for 2014.

Are you an 18- to 29-year-old male? Are you single, individualistic, and into music? Well then, the Kia Soul is the perfect car for you. At least that's what Kia tells us. The Android-based navigation and infotainment setup will likely please buyers in that demographic, but the Soul will impress just about anyone (of any age) who gets into it.

The 2014 Kia Soul rides on an all-new chassis that is about 29 percent stiffer than the last car's. The Soul's front and rear suspension setups have been upgraded, and the front subframe gets bushings to reduce ride harshness. There's electrically assisted power steering, not the old car's hydraulic system, and a six-speed automatic transmission, an upgrade to the last car's four-speed slushbox; both function and feel much better than the parts they replace. The new Soul is better looking than its predecessor, too, taking styling cues from Kia's popular Track'ster concept car.

All of these improvements should ensure that the new Soul, like the old Soul, will carry the funky-box class on its own.

You'll like:

  • Better ride quality, less road noise
  • Deceivingly spacious
  • Good steering

You won't like:

  • Polarizing exterior styling
  • Only the lowest trim gets a stick shift
  • Small cargo area with rear seats raised

2014 Kia Soul vs 2014 Toyota Corolla
The Toyota Corolla is an undisputed heavyweight among small cars. It has a seemingly permanent place on the list of the Top Ten Bestselling Nameplates. It’s reliable, fuel-efficient, and affordable, and it’s been around forever—well, 48 years, anyway. During that time, Toyota has sold nearly 40 million Corollas.

NHTSA Gives 2014 Kia Soul 5-Star Safety Rating
Whether or not you're a fan of the hip-hop hamsters, or the new fit and trim tuxedo-clad rodent trio, there's no denying the popularity of the Kia Soul. Whereas the Scion xB and Nissan Cube had their moments of popularity, the Soul has continued to get more and more popular with customers, and handily out-sells both the Cube and xB. In addition to more amenities and refinement, the 2014 Kia Soul can now claim a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
